Recently my client was arrested and presently in detention for abuse of office, corruption and money laundering; Which is false. The painful aspect of it all is that his assets abroad and some at home have been frozen by the London Metropolitan Police and Nigerian Authority. However, there is a certain sum of $22 million which my client secretly deposited in a Private vaulting company here in Nigeria with its head-office in Amsterdam and this is unknown to the Nigerian and U.K Authorities.
